Ferrari Land Takes Flight in Spain
After the official event at which Vice Chairman Piero Ferrari pressed the symbolic starter button, Ferrari Land has now also opened its doors to the public. This is the first Cavallino Rampante theme park in Europe and the second in the world after Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.
It occupies an area of 70,000 square metres within the PortAventura World resort, about an hour away from Barcelona. Ferrari Land is obviously for fans and enthusiasts, but above all it is a place where families can have fun and at the same time explore the history of the marque.
There are 11 attractions on offer. The most spectacular is unquestionably Red Force, the highest and fastest vertical accelerator in Europe, at 112 metres high and with a top speed of 180 km/h reached in just five seconds: an unforgettable experience for thrill-seekers.
Racing Legends and Flying Dreams are two of the park’s most innovative experiences, allowing visitors to fly (literally) through the history of F1 and GT. Ferrari Gallery is an interactive journey through the history of the marque.
Visitors can have a go at a pit stop or experience the excitement of driving a GT car with Maranello Gran Race and there are also plenty of simulators for adults and children. Finally, anyone wanting more thrills can try Thrill Towers; two towers in the shape of a piston for an experience of the thrill of free fall.
